Close and Far – English Poem

When you are far away I miss you, but when you are too close I`d wish you were far away. An unsolvable contradiction? Or normality when it comes to friendship and love?
I have already met a lot of people sharing these at first sight contradictory feelings. But in these corona times when we have to stay at home, we sometimes wish for a little more distance and freedom. And on the other hand we miss even more, the people we are not allowed to see.
Maybe the sunset-colors in the photopoem can give a little comfort …

Close and Far

When you`re far,
I want you close.

When you`re close,
I want you far.

(Karin Quade)
